MUD Quick Change Systems


The MUD ® Quick-Change Concept Standard Mold Bases

MUD ® Adapter Frame System permits production change- overs in less than ten minutes Standard mold bases can now be interchanged in less than ten minutes with MUD®’s Quick-Change adapter system. It’s an approach that works with any standard mold base in any molding machine up to 500-ton capacity. It’s also the most economical Quick-Change available. The system is based on a Master Unit Die adapter frame that remains in the molding machine during production changeovers. The frame is installed without modifying the machine. Standard mold bases equipped with companion ear plates are interchanged within this adapter frame. Just one adapter frame accommodates an unlimited number of standard mold bases. These frames are easily transferred to other machines since no other special mounting hardware is required. The system is based on the unique slide and clamp approach to mold changeovers developed by Master Unit Die. Standard mold bases equipped with MUD® ear plate sets simply slide in and out of the Quick-Change adapter frame. See Adapter Frames section. Adapter Frame System Options MUD ® Balancing Lift Bar These slide and lock bars allow standard mold bases to be easily lowered in and raised out of the molding machine. See page AF 103. Quick Coupler Locking KO Rod System This optional knockout assembly permits locking the mold ejector system to the machine’s hydraulic KO system with a simple push and turn action. See page AF 102.
